    I don't feel any better on lunesta, i actually felt better on clonzapan. Does lunesta increase 3 or 4 stage sleep patterns?

    My sleep study showed very little stage 3, no stage 4.

    Lunesta increases total sleep time, mainly via increases in stage 2 NREM sleep. It does not affect stage 3 and 4. In fact, very few sleep meds used for fibromyalgia, actually increases those stages of sleep. If you want something that does that, you might consider either lyrica or xyrem. - Mark
